Connections: The Future Of The Port Of Rochester

Jul 1, 2016

What's going on at the Port of Rochester?

The city is scraping a proposed plan to build a hotel, shops, and condominiums at the Port in Charlotte. Mayor Lovely Warren's office says the developer, Edgewater Resources, failed to submit detailed project financing for the project, and instead asked for a nine month extension. Mayor Warren says the city will seek other development partners.

We talk about the decision and what could be next for the Port. Our guests:

  • Marianne Warfle, president of the Port of Charlotte Merchants Association, and general manager of the Port of Rochester Marina         
  • William Brown, systems analyst for TSM Solutions and member of Charlotte Strong
